Audi's mid-engine sports car, the R8, is available in both coupe and convertible (Spyder) forms. Power is provided to all four wheels by a 5.2L V10 engine. The quattro AWD system has a rear-wheel torque bias, but can send torque to the front wheels to improve traction.
The R8 was redesigned for 2017. A 540-bhp V10 engine is standard in the R8 V10. The R8 V10 plus has reduced weight and an additional 70 horsepower.
No model with the four rings is closer to motorsport, none is more striking and more dynamic: at the Geneva Motor Show, Audi is presenting the second generation of its high-performance R8 sports car. The V10 mid-engine and a newly developed quattro drive ensure breathtaking driving performance, especially in the top-of-the-range version with 449 kW (610 hp): achieving 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, its top speed is 330 km/h (205.1 mph)....Read.
